PORTUGUESEMadame de Sade
by Mishina - Directed by: Roberto Lage

In three different moments of their lives - the autumn of 1772, the end of 1778’s summer, and 1790’s spring – six women (three historical, and three fictional) meet at Madame de Montreuil’s house hall, in Paris:

-Renée, or Madame de Sade, who incarnates marital fidelity -Madame de Montreuil, Renée’s mother, that represents law, society, and moral -Madame de Simiane, who symbolizes religion -Madame de Saint-Font, the desires of the flesh -Anne, Renée’s younger sister, who is the embodiment of feminine candor mixed with the lack of principles -Charlotte, the maid, who represents the people


Through these female characters, the Japanese writer Yukio Mishima (1925-1970) investigates historical events from the life of the French aristocrat, Marquês de Sade, renowned in the 18th century for his pornographic writing, his sadistic sexual life, and amoral political positions.
